Mangaluru International Airport Commences Work to Install Runway Centerline Lights

  • 2023-11-06

Mangaluru International Airport has begun installing runway centerline lights to improve the visibility of the 2450m long runway 06/24. The airport had made provision for the installation of runway centerline lights during the runway recarpeting process, and the installation work is scheduled to be completed by March 2024.
 
A total of 160 centerline lights will be installed with redundancy provision. Cable ducts are being constructed on either side of the runway simultaneously to connect the centerline lights to the main and stand by circuits, which will act as failsafe for smooth aircraft operations. “It is a constant endeavor at Mangaluru International Airport to prioritize safety of aircraft operations and the teams work diligently towards this end,” the spokesperson said.


The airport has availed NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) for the duration of the project, and the work is carried out during this notified period to avoid disruption to regular flight operations. The runway centerline lights, which are inset lights, will complement the runway edge lights and runway threshold lights that are already functional as a visual aid for pilots.
